With no Fixtures for the First XV this weekend, as Shetland were unable to travel down, it is over to the Youth players.
The Youth Section (U13-U18) will play for the second year in the Red Conference. Made up of the following teams: Ellon, Perthshire, Mackie, Aberdeen/Garioch, Deeside Wanderers and Gordonstoun. They compete in home and away fixtures, all ages playing the same team over the same weekend. This weekend as a curtain raiser, Ellon play Aberdeen/Garioch. Aberdeen (ex Grammar) have merged with Garioch to boost squad numbers this season, but the season start has come a little to quick for Aberdeen as they are unable to raise a team at U18 and U15. Both these games are recorded as Ellon wins, although we would rather have played to get game time.
Sunday 28th August:
11:00 U13 Ellon V Aberdeen/Garioch. Second team pitch
11:00 U14 Ellon V Aberdeen/Garioch. First team pitch
11:00 U16 Aberdeen/Garioch V Ellon. Kellands Park, Inverurie (Garioch pitches).
Ellon First XV start their season on the 3rd September at home to Deeside.
